Do you have a digital innovation?

Applications for the Vodafone Digital Award are accepted in three categories until March 5

The Vodafone Foundation will accept digital innovation ideas till midnight on March 5. The technology application scheme with a total award value of 15 million HUF  will allow through those who already have one completed digital development/device, and create something new in one of the three categories of digital child, digital families and digital NGOs.

The Vodafone Foundation has set the objective of dedicating the Vodafone Digital Award to supporting those who serve the good of society through their developments, and wish to help. The idea is that completed digital innovations should support the day-to-day lives and technical integration of the Foundation’s key target groups. Applications for the scheme with a total award value of 15 million HUF have been accepted since mid-December. Thanks to the extended deadline, those whose ready-made solutions require further development and those who wish to present such solution to a wider audience but could not do so until now in the lack of funding, can apply until midnight on March 5.

‘The key global values of Vodafone and the Vodafone Foundations are responsibility-taking and the supporting of projects which serve the good of society with the help of mobile technology. As a digital company, we aim to support creative and innovative solutions that use technology and allow us to bring real change in the lives of families, children and NGOs. With the help of the Vodafone Digital Award, we aim to identify talents we intend to support in order to get closer to a digital world and an exciting future.’ – said Amanda Nelson, CEO of Vodafone Hungary.

The applications submitted will be judged by a 7-member Jury. In the evaluation process, the Jury will consider how much the device, product or development submitted will help the life of the given target group, how much the technological solution in hand is considered new, and how effective the planned project budget is. Feasibility, social usefulness and the promotion of the project will also be important considerations when choosing a winner.
